Health Insurance

Foothill and De Anza Colleges require all international students in F-1 status to have adequate health insurance coverage. To ensure this, the International Student Office staff has identified an excellent policy provided through Renaissance Agencies, Inc. that offers our F-1 students the best possible medical coverage at the best possible price. Its provisions allow students to choose from a large number of health-care providers in our local communities using a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO). Please visit the Web site indicated above to find a doctor or a hospital, to get a downloadable claim form, and for other information about your international student insurance.
With a few exceptions, this insurance is mandatory for all students. Students will be automatically enrolled in this policy at the time of registration and automatically billed with each quarter's tuition and fees.
This policy provides excellent benefits, including a generous maximum of $100,000 per condition and 90% coverage for most physician and clinic/hospital services. For policy specifics, the above Web site will provide complete details.

And Remember! To Avoid Co-pays: Before seeing a doctor or going to the hospital, except in an emergency, go to the Foothill Heath Services Office first in the Campus Center, Room 2126.
